Where'd these numbers come from?
1) go to https://boundingbox.klokantech.com
2) In "Find Place With Google", type whatever you want a bounding box for
3) Select "CSV RAW" and copy.
Copied format is as follows:
bbox = minLongitude , minLatitude , maxLongitude , maxLatitude
Don't like the spans? Feel free to change them at the site above
